How to change sparkplugs in 3.5 litre

I am going to change my spark-plugs in my 06 Charger SXT that has a 3.5 litre engine.
I can get 2 of them out no problem but the rest look like I have to take the intake manifold off.
Is that right?
What about vacuum leaks when I put it together again?
Is it as bad as it looks?
Thanks

Do a thread search, there are instructions out there.

I replaced mine about 2 weeks ago, it took a little over an hour with patience and regular hand tools. The only thing to watch is when re-installing the upper intake manifold make sure you seat the egr tube and gasket completely into the manifold.

The manifold does have a rubber gasket that you would probably not need to replace when doing this, but I had purchased one when I got my new plugs so I put it in...

Once the manifold is off, the plugs are all very easy to replace.
